Wherever one travels there are always recurring photographic subjects. Sometimes we seek them out and others just seem to accumulate as the trip goes on. One of my recurring subjects was steps, though there is more as will be seen in future posts.
Steps seemed appropriate for my final post of 2013. As we approach 2014, many people will make resolutions and set goals for the New Year, some of which will be pursued and achieved. Reaching a goal requires taking the necessary steps and I hope that someone may find among these photographs, an image to help them focus on their goals. If you do, please write and let me know.
The images are varied and speak for themselves. Some were taken for their simple beauty; others such as the mum keeping a close eye on her energetic daughter are universal; and others such as the monks returning to their quarters at day’s end capture a scene that has travelled through the ages.
I wish everyone a happy, safe and successful new year and I look forward to sharing more of my photographs with you in 2014.
